Blu never reached the superstar status that many hope that he’d ascend to, and honestly, we doubt that he has a problem with that. Known for moving to the beat of his own drum, the MC who comes bearing new projects sporadically will offer up the Good To Be Home LP in coming weeks.

To be quite frank, the double disc album reads very well on paper. Twenty songs featuring some of the West Coast’s elite wordsmiths are split straight down the middle, and are fronted by the leading single “West.” Guest appearances include Alchemist, Krondon, Casey Veggies, Like and BeYoung of Pac Div, Fashawn, Co$$, Prodigy, MED, Phil Da Agony, Mitchy Slick, and more.
